unexpected consequences from their early infrastructure design. los angeles county is a land of sprawling development. with development comes hundreds of square miles of concrete, leaving no way for water to naturally soak into the ground. in areas of such widespread urbanization, flooding can be devastating. man: back in early 1930s, there was a flooding that took a lot of lives and property. as a result, the city of los angeles, in order to protect future flooding in the city, they decided to take the los angeles river and make it a flood control channel. they concreted the walls of the river in order for water to get to ocean much faster. narrator: cities throughout southern california converted natural rivers to these concrete channels, part of their storm drain systems. this allowed expanding development without the need for large flood plains. kharaghani: the los angeles river is approximately 51 miles. concrete reduces the size of the river that you need to carry the water because it speeds up the flow of water. if you'd like to remove all the concrete and to have natural

think -- i know it's not popular. i think we should cite jay walkers. they do in los angeles and i got a ticket 20 years ago and never did it again and i think we need to make the pedestrians aware of the rules and they must respect traffic as well and there needs to be outreach there. >> mr. lagos. >> yes, this is a very interesting question and it affects everybody, and i come from a city originally where the cars are king, los angeles, and one of the reasons i came here because the car isn't king here, but for pedestrians it is a problem, and i support reducing automobile traffic in certain parts of san francisco because i think there are parts of san francisco dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists and i would support any proposal to reduce traffic and those zones in san francisco that have been shown to be dangerous for pedestrians. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. rogers. >> i hope this doesn't seem like a continual drum beat but if they make the park merced project go forward there is going to be a lot more traffic on 19th avenue. with that said i know the cameras are slowing

construct, operate, and maintain. in population centers like los angeles, the scope of the task is staggering. the hyperion wastewater treatment plant serves four million people. it processes 350 million gallons of sewage and removes 500 tons of solids daily. after treatment at hyperion, what was once raw sewage is clean enough to release into santa monica bay. other cities and towns release treated wastewater, or effluent, into local rivers, lakes, and streams. as it flows downstream, additional cities may capture it for drinking water, consume it, and treat the water again. in other words, the water coming out of a wastewater treatment plant often enters the watershed, flows into intakes of drinking water treatment plants, and eventually finds its way right back to our faucets. it takes huge investments to ensure that wastewater and drinking water treatment plants function properly to maintain a safe water supply. we made the initial investments in the plants and the pipes. but once we accomplished that, there was this great recognition that we had a series of issues associated w

----------------- ----------------- ---------------- intro muy buenas tardes. en una ciudad practicamente desierta se convirtio washingt on este lunes para hacerle frente al huracan sandy. ============= el presidente obama regreso anticipadamente de su campana en florida para encabezar la respuesta federal a sandy. presidente obama debido a la naturaleza de la tormenta, estamos seguros de que sera 1 proceso lento a traves de 1 amplia zona del pais y millones de personas seran afectadas, por lo que el mensaje mas importante al publico es por favor escuchen lo que las autoridades estatales y locales estan diciendo." el presidente agrego que fema tiene posicionado personal, agua y alimentos en los estados afectados, y que publico debe entender que podrian ser varios dias en que la energia electrica y el transporte vuelvan a la normalidad. en washington, se tomo la inusual medida de clausurar totalmente el tren subterraneo y buses el lunes, afectando a los que fueron a trabajar. ricardo ramirez, usuario del metro si, porque normalmente uso el metro. la verdad aproveche 1 ride que venia a dejar alguien a su esposa. la totalidad del gobierno federal cerro sus puertas, como tambien muchos de los museos y monumentos federales de la capital. residentes hacian compras de ultimo momento, esperanzados que no pase mucho. maria lopez, residente de washington d.c. confio en dios en que no va a pasar como dicen, verdad. pero con gran parte del comercio cerrado, residentes como esta pareja tuvieron problemas para hacer tramites. carmen castro, residente de washington d.c. lastimosamente se fue el sistema y no pudimos hacer ninguna diligencia." bismarck aguilar, residente de washington d.c. y nos agarro el tiempo malo. no pudimos hacer ninguna transaccion y lamentablemente salimos a la calle a perder el tiempo porque las cosas estan malas por el tiempo. en barrios residenciales que tienden a inundarse en la capital, los residentes tambien se preparaban con sacos de arena para hacerle frente al agua. standup: fernando pizarro, washington d.c. el gobierno federal continuara cerrado este martes, ya que sandy empeorara en la noche del lunes a la madrugada del martes. desde washington, fernando pizarro, en los aeropuertos, miles de vuelos cancelados deja el paso de la denominada tormenta perfecta .. lilian mass nos amplia.. tanto en aeropuerto nacional ronald reagan como el washington dulles mantienen sus puertas abiertas a pesar de las inclemencias del tiempo pero en su interior no encontrara ni una tan sola en los aeropuertos, tanto en aeropuerto nacional ronald reagan como el washington dulles mantienen sus puertas abiertas a pesar de las inclemencias del tiempo pero en su interior no encontrara ni una tan sola aeronave .. ya que las aerolÍneas han cerrado sus puertas hasta que las condiciones del tiempo mejoren .." las aerolÍneas han o sus aviones a otros lugares fuera de la region, en donde puedan estar seguros y asÍ evitar que se daÑen lo mas probable es que esperaran a que la tormenta pase por completo antes de traerlos de regreso " vuelos cancelados, y personas varadas sin tener a donde ir es lo Único que se ve en ambos aeropuertos llevando a muchos a la frustraciÓn asi Í como don juan quien planeaba regresar a su hogar en los Ángeles despuÉs de visitar a sus hijos .. y aunque esta maÑa de confirmar on su vuelo se llevo una gran sorpresa al llegar " pues no hay nadie .. esta todo solitario y yo creo que yo me merezco una explicaciÓ n o que me ofrezcan algo a donde quedarme por que mi familia vive muy lejos de aqui Í y yo ni modo que me quede hasta al miÉrcoles" pero tanto don juan como muchos otros tendrÁn que dormir ya sea en el aeropuerto o deberÁn costearse su propio hotel .. porque la gran mayorÍa de la aeroli Íneas no se hacen responsa bles cuando es la naturaleza la que se encarga de cancelar los vuelos .. muchos otros entienden que los vuelos se tengan que cancelar pero agradecerÍan que las aeroli Íneas les ofrecieran un mejor servicio " " estoy muy molesta de andar caminando a lo tonto aquÍ porque se les olvido dar informaciÓn .. " aunquesea una noche de hotel de las dos.. si usted queire mas informacio Ón sobre ambos aeropuertos y sus aerolinears puede seguirlos en twister bajo dcairports aquellos que se aventuren a llegar lo Único que encontraran serÁn aeroli Íneas cerradas region metropolitana esta en alerta ante la inminente llegada del huracan sandy, algunos expertos hablan sobre una posible catastrofe y la posibilidad de que este huracan afecte a unas 60 millones de personas entre los estados que se veran afectados ... para profundizar mas sobre este tema nos acompaÑa via telefonica el meteorologo mike davison, directamente desde las oficinas del servicio nacional de meteorologia en sterling virginia, mike, buenas tardes... mike, que categoria tiene el huracan sandy actualmente? cuanta acumulacion de agua se espera? que tanta velocidad estaran alcanzando las rafagas de viento?cuando es intensidad y dejando el area? gracias una pausa... pero antes el socio con un un avance de los deportes. buenas tarde para todos, vamos rapidamente con la informacion deportiva y lo vamos a iniciar con el campeon del biebsol de grandes ligas. marco scutaro, en un octubre de ensueÑo, disparÓ otro hit clave para darles a los gigantes su segundo campeonato en dos aÑos al vencer anoche 4-3 a los tigres en 10 vibrantes innings. san francisco completÓ la barrida de cuatro juegos gracias al sencillo remolcador de scutaro con dos outs en la parte alta de la dÉcima. este tÍtulo de san francisco se cocinÓ vamos a la ciudad de los vientos porque dc united viajo para completar la temporada regular de la mls. bueno, el once capitalino ya regreso a casa con un valioso empate y con el segundo lugar de la tabla de posiciones de la conferencia del este. dc united con chicago fire nivelaron 1-1, con goles de patrick nyarko a los 16 minutos del primer tiempo y el empate llego por medio del colombiano lionard pajoy recien a los 5 minutos de la parte complementaria. con esto dc united clasifico segundo en la tabla. dc united jugara frente a red bulls, y el primer partido sera este sabado en nueva york y el partido se vuelta sera el miercoles 7 de noviembre aca en el estadio robert f. vamos con las novedades de la nfl y con el unico equipo del area que jugo el fin de semana. ayer en pittsburgh con un buen juego aÉreo y por tierra, los steelers derrotaron a los redskins con marcador de 27-12. la defensiva de pittsburgh buscÓ en todo momento presionar a robert griffin iii y lo logrÓ, agregando que su ofensiva le tirÓ varios balones al novato. los washington redskins llegaran a la semana 9 para enfrentar a los panthers de carolina con una marca de solo 3 victorias y 5 derrotas. mientras tanto los ravens de baltimore tenia la fecha libre. hasta aqui los deportes, tendremos mas esta noche solo a las once. hacemos una pausa... y al volver tenemosmanosabanas, abri se espera que el huracan sandy se prolonge hasta el miercoles en horas de la madrugada por lo cual es muy importante que se tomen medidas preventivas que puedan garantizar la seguridad de usted y su familia... como por ejemplo, tener agua y alimentos no perecederos a la mano, sabanas, abrigos, linternas, baterias. asi como sus documentos a la mano,

tavis: good evening. from los angeles, i am tavis smiley. tonight a conversation with salman khan. he is part of the national conversation about how we improve schools. his goal of providing a free world-class education to anyone, anywhere, is ambitious, to be sure. his success has landed him on the top 100 list can receive approval from the gates foundation. our conversation with salman khan, coming up right now. >> there is a saying that dr. king had that said there is always the right time to do the right thing. i try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminating hunger and we have work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: if you think they are not any big ideas out there, salman khan is a man with a big idea. he founded the free nonprofit khan academy to provide free education to anyone, anywhere. he has delivered more than 45 million lessons today. salman khan, good to have you on this program today. when you say the one world schoolhouse, what do you mean by that? >> it was intentionally in chosen to be interpreted a couple of different ways. it is kind of a play on words, to harken back to the one-room schoolhouse where you have the students all helping each other, more time with the teacher. tavis: for those who are not yet familiar with your work, tell me how the khan academy works. >> it is most known for a collection of videos that i started making for my cousin. there are now over 3000 of them, everything from basic arithmetic all the way to college level calculus or biology or chemistry. a lot of students are using it as a supplement. if you are having trouble with something, it is like a free to. -- like a free tutor. we have a lot of people working on interactive software. you can get feedback, get practice problems. video is a part of it, but we are going to le'ron interactivity. tavis: i get the sense in reading your work over the years that you are saying technology humanizes classrooms. if i am right about that, tell me why you believe that. >> when people talk about technology or virtual anything, they alwimaginehat wsomeho achying acal -- like amazon.com versus barnes and vulcans orlike the balkan tyhe borg in star trek. we are seeing in classrooms that technology is not used to demonize thelassroom, but to go the other way. we are all sitting there physically with each other but not interacting. we are staring at the chalkboard and one person is lecturing. one student might be bored and one might be lost. the teacher is not getting a lot of feedback. we are saying let's use technology to take some of that off the teachers table so is not about eight lector anymore. it should be about interacting with your friends and the teacher and doing problem- solving. when i was in school, if a friend is having trouble with something and you whispered, you should look at it this way, you should -- you would get reprimanded. why are you talking? they should be working with each other and with the teacher. tavis: if you went to the department of educationight now and walked into arne duncan office a he cou show you on the wall a map where the 2000 worst schools in the country are -- they know where they are. have them on a map and they can identify those sools. tell me how your approach to education, your idea of education levels the playing field for poor kids who are stuck in those schools. we know where the schools are. how does your approach to level the playing field work in those schools? >> we work with those schools and others. you see this even more in underserved neighborhoods. in the traditional model, students keep getting promoted. your in the second grading you did not learn the multiplication tables, you get progressed. in underserved areas, the kids show up in what is supposed to be an algebra class and they never learned multiplication. even its the kids are amazingly smart and hard-working and have a great teacher, and they do not always have the resources, there is no way to get past that disconnect. we are saying, let's empower the teacher to be able to differentiate this instruction across the students. we saw in the data, in a traditional boundaries set up, the teacher would just have to march the students along and pretend to do algebra even if some of them did not understand the basic ideas. now they can go back and learn at their own pace and build stronger foundation. when you allow students that you thought were slow are not able to get ideas, if you let them do the remedial class, they can race ahead. the problem is simply these hard gaps to get over. it seems pretty universal. tavis: taken inside the text of the one world school house and give me a few ideas for how we advance in education. >> right now all of the education debate or reform it is all about singapore, they are better at factoring polynomial. look at the last 10, 20, 30, 50 years. look at the last 10 really innovative companies, they were all american companies. the whole principle is, let's not make our model war like the model in singapore, let's make it more american. these are american schools, we need an american model. the whole model comes from prussia. it was the most powerful german state at the time, but a country that does not exist anymore. when the thought about how to do it, the early stages of the industrial revolution, we put kids together in batches. at each station we will try to spray some knowledge at them. some of the product is good product, they will be the doctors and engineers. that was ok during the industrial revolution. essentially the rest of the world did that same model, but now the world is very different. we need people who are creative , who can think out of the box and be more like what makes america great. make our prussian model more like the prussian model in singare. let'make sure people master fundamentals and move on. also f up time for creativity in the classroom. tavis: some would argue that the last think our kids need is more creative time. they need more time spent almost fundamentals that they are not getting. what do you mean by that? >> there is the notion of time and gor. we spend more time, we add more homework. th not doing a lot of homework. it is really dinner with your parents and geg enough slee homework actually goes against that. we are saying you can get a lot of your court learning in a faster, more productive way if you are allowed to go at your own pace. it makes a lot of sense. you can be more problem-solving instead of just sitting in elector of a, you will learn a lot faster and retain a lot more. it frees up time to actually do creative things. as an employer, you interview people from great universities and save what have you made? what have you created? usually the answer is no, i was too busy doing homework and all of that. more and more, employers are starting to value more and more, what have you created? >> how would working at your own pace in your own time work? you have 25 students in a classroom all working at their own pace at their own time. how do you evaluate that? help me understand how that model would work. >> every classroom have been working with has done it a little bit different. the general principle is, some of these models were first tried out in the 1920's and later in the 1970's. the teacher used to give a worksheet and you can imagine before technology, what teacher takes 25 or 30 students and have to contain all that information? all the students are working at their own time, at their own pace, at different levels in one classroom. you could have one student doing trigonometry and another student doing negative numbers. the assessment is not to say this one has a c, he is a mediocre student. you can say, tavis is struggling with the concept, let me walk over to his desk and work with him on this, or sa is howl in trouble with this and tavis has already shown he has mastered it, why don't we get into tutor him with it. tavis: correct me if i am wrong, this model has such a strong link to technology that has to start with kids having access, and so many of these poor children in these communities don't have that kind of access. you just made a big announcement that some -- samsung. explain what the sam sun announcement was, but help me understand how it is -- the starting point has got to be giving kids a free access. some of the kids don't even have the access here. >> there are a couple of dimensions here. the here and now in working with schools, even when they got access to laptops and kids would get beat up on the way home and someone would take the laptop from them, the solutions we have seen or some combination of either after-school program for the mine have access to the technology there, extended class time or extended computer lab time, and that seems to work pretty well. a longer-term solution, and this is what i am optimistic about, for the first time we can let education ride on the technology curve, where technology is getting it dramatically cheaper and more accessible on a yearly basis. if you look at the adoption of broadband technology in relation to the air conditioner or the refrigerator coming it is faster than all of that. tavis: what was the samsung thing that i saw? >> they are going to include some of our content on their site. they are not the only ones. people are including content on their devices and making it more accessible. ,eople are putting it on dvd's and it is all for free. tavis: tell me what are who stands in the way of these innovations you are talking about tonight, what stands in the way of that being done? somebody says the school administrators work in the way. some say school administrators or politicians are in the way. level with the and tell me what stands in the way of us scaling up the success that you have had. >> we are surprised how quickly the attraction has happened. if you had asked me in 2010, at that time i just viewed as a supplemental thing, a free tutor for anybody out there on the net -- on the internet. i have heard so many things, it is bureaucratic, it is political. i think in the past if you wanted to do anything like this, the only way to reach students was to go at the top level, five at political battle and lobby your way down, and frankly, no one succeeded. even when i was making those first videos, literally from my closet, i was able to reach anyone. there was no middle man, no gatekeeper. that allow people to start seeing what is possible, and then word of mouth, teachers telling teachers, parents telling parents. now we have 20,000 teachers using it. that did not have to seek permission from anybody. with us in a groundswell in the last 18 months. it is not happening as fast as people would like it to happen, but i am pretty optimistic, it is happeng faster than i expected. tavis: one of the things i like about the internet is that on any given day at any given time, bill gates and i are even. he has access to the same information i have access to. he can probably navigated better than i can, but we have access to the same information. it leads to this question. how possible is it that we can democratize -- how can your efforts help us democratize education? >> when i first heard that in the summer of 2010, i did not childrent bill gates' are using it. i made those videos for my cousin. that ishat is exciting right now. he can afford tutors, but he still felt this is what his children need and uses it himself. it is a very strong message to the rest of the world. in the past, whenever you wanted to do charity, we want to do something for people who had less, maybe you could create a cheaper version and somehow get it to poor people. but bill gates is using this thing. we could have a kid in a village in india or sub-saharan africa and have the exact same thing that bill gates has. >> as long as they have access. >> already in india they are talking about devices for kids to share. tavis: at this point, we are almost at the finish line in this race between obama and romney. to your ears, what did we miss in the debate, in the conversation about education during the campaign? what would you have liked to have heard more about? >> i think the main disconnect between what the conversation is about and what should happen is this negativity or pessimism that comes around, were you look at other countries test scores and say america is done for. the reaction is more testing, more structured. that is going to be exact wrong direction. you have to look at what america's strengths are. despite the fact that our test scores, our education system is very rigid, america is still a hot bed of education. it is not just technology. tavis: i hear your. and i don't argue that, except that example, respectful, only applies to that view, not to the many. mark zuckerberg does not happen every day. that is innovation. that is an example, but that is not coming forth from the masses. >> right now, america is a hotbed of innovation. right now you have structural unemployment, kids coming out of college and cannot find jobs. at the same time, silicon valley cannot find people. it is about how can we get more kids who can be creative. this is what it is all about. it is important to be able to factor polynomial, but it is just as important to be able to tutor your peers, and to write creative works. tavis: you mentioned these 20,000 teachers who are using your creations and innovations. do you have any reason to believe that this model that we talked about tonight can be or will be embraced over time by the system, by the infrastructure, or is your greatest fear that there are not enough of the right people who get it? >> i have a lot of fears. my biggest fear is that the whole message is misperceive, which is that this is about replacing teachers. is the exact opposite, it is about empowering teachers. what makes me hopeful, it is not cleatos whether this is a univer seems like a much broader solution than what people thought it was. we are at the very early stages, and what we do intend or 20 years could be 10 times better than what we are doing today. it is really just a matter of people understanding that this will be empowering the teachers and students and parents. traditional reform efforts are like, what is broken, let's change that. if you go to an inner-city neighborhood and someone wants to do something innovative, they will say, you are experimenting with my kid, how come they are not doing this in the rich neighborhoods? it is not just for the rich kids or the underserved kids. it is not some type of weird, only for you or only for them. tavis: i asked earlier what stands in the way of implementing these kind of ideas to a greater degree. let me ask another question. what are your internal challenges to scaling up what you want to do, to being where you want to be in five or 10 years? >> to be somewhat shameless, we are not for profit. we look like a tech company, but we are not. to scale a and b this kind of institution for the world, we need support of people. that is something i worry about every day. on top of that, it is really up to us to make sure we are using the right tools, working with educators and researchers, to make sure we are listening to what is needed and make sure -- all of the evidence, we are seeing it move the dial in a lot of schools. tavis: this notion that technology in so many ways makes kids more antisocial. i keep driving this notion of access. the flip side is, kids grow up and beat smarter, but no social skills. >> i am the parent of young kids. even a book can make anti-social if you just read a book all day and don't go outside and play. i emphasize that this is not about replacing classrooms with kids just looking at computers all day. this is about taking class rooms that were fundamentally passing -- pass and then turning them into interactive environments. it is giving tools to teachers. when kids get together, they are going to talk to each other and talk to the teachers. they will be rated on how good they are expressing themselves and interacting with their peers. >> the new book from salman khan is called "the one world schoolhouse." we have just scratched the surface on a very deep subject. it was a delight to have you on the program. that is our show for tonight. as always, thanks for watching. and keep the faith. >> for more information on today's show, visit tavis smiley at pbs.org. tavis: hi, i'm tavis smiley. join me next time for a conversation with -- a look at the final weeks of this campaign. that is next time. we will see you then. >>here is a saying that dr. king had that said there is always the right time to do the right thing. i try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminating hunger and we have work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> be more. pbs. >> be more. pbs.

companies, from small businesses to major corporations. what can we do for you? >> and now "bbc world news america." >> this is "bbc world news america." hurricane sandy bears down on the u.s. east coast bringing with it walls of water and if he robberies winds. millions are in its -- and ferocious winds. nervous residents heed the warning to stay indoors. and with just weeks away until election day, sandy sends the presidential contest for a loop. no one wants to play politics in this storm. >> welcome to our viewers on public television in america and around the globe. hurricane sandy, one of the biggest storms ever to hit the united states, is bearing down on the east coast. nine states stretching from north carolina to connecticut have declared a state of emergency. 50 million people live in the storm's path. usually bustling cities have been brought to a stand still. this is the scene in manhattan where a crane is dangling from a 65-story building. a monday m manhattan unlike any other. the city that's supposed to never sleep is eerily quiet, awaiting the storm. subway stopped. even wall street not trading. the -- >> we're used to coming down and the water calm, much, much slower. it's over the banks and the storm hasn't gotten here. it makes me nervous. >> the impact of hurricane sandy is starting to be felt. high winds and crashing waves along the east coast. >> good morning, america. breaking news on the halloween superstorm. >> morning tv shows left americans in in doubt the storm severity. >> 15 million people in its path. >> storm preparations take precedence over campaigning for next week's presidential election. mitt romney canceled his events for two days. barack obama returned to the white house. >> the center of the storm is going to hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country and millions of people are going to be affected. >> the holbrooke family are leaving nothing to chance as they prepare for the storm to do its worse. >> if we get a lot of water in the back yard it could lap over so we're going to sandbag that when we're done filling the up water here. we have a ton of food upstairs. most of it is nonperishable. if the refrigerator goes out we can eat for days. >> thousands of flights have been canceled, creating chaos for travelers. this family is from cornwall, making theirstis to new york, now won't be able to know when they'll get home. >> it was nothing on the radar when we left home. also the concern of delays going home later in the week. i think, yes, this is really quite anxious. we'd rather come at a different time. >> this is a once in a generation storm with the potential to kill and flatten. millions of americans embrace for the full impact. >> we go live to laura who is in brooklyn. earlier you were in manhattan. how have things changed recently? >> well, the wind is really picking up, and so have the rain. the east river where it meets the hudson river and the new york harbor, the water is beginning to rise. you see that storm surge. and that's even before the hurricane has made landfall, and that's even before the high tide here in new york, which isn't due until 9:00 tonight, not for another few hours. but remember we have high tide already, even before the hurricane, because it's a full moon. you have these strange astronomical high tide. it's weird confluence of events. and new york is really bracing itself for what this storm will bring. you can hear the sirens behind me. will it bring massive flooding? will it bring power outages? there are dedicated storm chasers out there but most of the city is inside hunkering down, bracing for what's to come. >> lawyer awe, we are -- laura, we're looking at the scene in new jersey, the waves coming your way are massive. what are people anticipating overnight in the city? >> well, i think the worst-case scenario overnight in the city is there will be flooding in all those low-lying coastal areas like the one where i am now which is supposed to have been evacuated. nearly 400,000 people who have been told to evacuate and the worry is there will be flooding of the subway, that could flood. the electricity substations in lower manhattan, they're underground for historic reasons, they could also flood. this could cause massive disruption to the city, so people on the edges of their seat just waiting for this to come. the worst of it will be overnight and when we wake up tomorrow morning we'll see what the storm has brought. >> it's amazing, laura, looking behind you a few seconds ago, there were peopl strollialg ther people are still out taking a look at this storm. are they safe? >> well, you know, there's t actually reaches ple hours new york. worst of it is not -- officials have been coming up to us when we were broadcasting saying, you need to move, ladies. this is dangerous. it is dangerous. we were sitting in our car earlier and it was rocking from side to side. that's how strong the winds are. really only the fool hearted and dog walkers and the most dedicated storm chasers are out at the moment. winds up to 80 miles an hour are predicted. very dangerous, clearly, but not yet here. >> ok. and the most dedicated correspondent, make that man get his dog back inside. thank you so much in brooklyn. well, let's now go to the coast of new jersey which has been feeling the brunt of sandy since early this morning. ocean city and atlantic city already getting a lot of flooding. there is a mandatory evacuation in that area, but some people have decided to ignore those warnings. earlier i spoke to michelle, the executive director of the regional chamber of commerce in ocean city, new jersey. she said thousands of people delayed evacuating and now they're stuck on the island. how many people have been evacuated from there, michelle? >> most of the people have been evacuated. we're a small barrier island. during october we have a lot of people that are leaving anyway for the winter. we do have a lot of people, though, that have stayed, probably 8,000 people that have stayed due to they thought it wasn't going to be as bad as it is and then they were unable to get off the island. >> ok. we're looking live pictures of new jersey. the storm swell looks huge. what does it feel like to you when you look at your window? >> it's unbelievable. it really is. we're seeing swells on the water between 20 feet and further for -- with a beach, the waves. and wind gusts 60 and above and we're just starting to get the storm hitting our coastline. we know high tide is at 8:00 tonight. we're all just hoping for the best at this point. the streets are starting to get high -- reich a high tide again and we have two hours to go. >> we're seeing pictures of maryland. exactly the same scene. your husband is the mayor of ocean city. how nervous is he today, michelle? >> he was nervous. he was out and about making sure people that could times we. they were still evacuating people that wanted to leave. he was down there helping, doing that. a lot of businesses, too, helping boarding up that didn't have the proper stand-by for things locked up so he was out there doing that. very worried. this is a storm of a lifetime for us and we're just hoping and praying that everyone, you know, stays inside, takes notice not to go outside and beware of the next 12 hours are really important to ocean city, new jersey. >> ok. of course, more to come overnight, michelle, as those winds pick up. joining us from atlantic city -- ocean city. thank you very much. well, here in the nation's capital, the big affect from this storm. earlier today i went to the emergency office in washington, d.c.'s mayor, vincent gray, to hear about his plans to keep the city safe. in the city 16 years and i've never seen washington looking and feeling like it does today. describe the mood in the city today for me. >> well, i think people are taking it seriously. this is a very serious, perhaps the most severe storm of this type that the city will ever experience. we've asked people to please get off the streets, stay off the streets, go home, stay home, and people really are adhering to those warnings. we appreciate that. and we're doing everything we can to try and prepare the city to be able to mitigate it. >> as mayor of the city, what are you most concerned about? >> well, i'm concerned of course about power outages and getting people's power restored as quickly as possible afterwards. the potential of flooding. we have areas where we know we have flooding even when we have serious rain. we worked hard. we have the sandbags out. 16,000 distributed across the city. we worked hard, also, to get leaves off the ground, if they back up, that will make the flooding problem even more severe. so we've done everything we can to mitigate those circumstances, again, the power outages, the trees coming down and potentially crashing into people's automobiles or into their cars and the potential -- >> is it a dangerous storm? >> it's a very dangerous storm. when you have winds predicted to be as much as 60 to 65 miles an hour, consequences could be quite severe. >> you are eight days away from a major presidential election. what kind of political impact could this hurricane have on it? >> well, you know, i think so many people pay so much attention to this election. it's actually hard to believe there are people still debating whether they're going to go for one or the other candidate. i think the storm, the consequences of the storm will have passed enough for people not to be impeded in terms of their ability to vote. i hope that's the case in other parts of the country. we hope this won't impede people to go out and vote. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think people are obviously talking about it to a certain extent. it's not in the front of their minds. what it does politically, conventional campaigning has ceased. it takes the two candidates off the media. i don't think people will be interested in them anyway. the normal style of campaigning has stopped. i don't mean politics has stopped. i think this is an important political moment. but the normal stuff of campaigning is over for a few days at least. >> bridgette kendall in cleveland, ohio. ohio only on the edge of hurricane sandy but right at the center of america's political storm. what do they think the impact on mitt romney's campaign is going to be there? >> the winds and rain are rough here in cleveland. nothing like being experienced on the eastern seaboard but, yes, today there was a big drop . we were thinking mitt romney and his vice-presidential candidate, paul ryan, were determined to carry on campaigning even though the president was going back to washington and suddenly at midday trfs an announce from the campaigning, because of the sensitivity of millions of americans facing this emergency from the hurricane, mitt romney and paul ryan are canceling all their events for today and for tomorrow. and so it turns out this will be the last time that mitt romney will be seen on the stomp in public probably for a couple of days. so he's taking himself completely out of the picture. in ohio it's been clear from the speeches that they don't think they clinched -- this is a critical state. he needs ohio to become president. and these rallies are important to get people to talk to their friends and relatives to encourage them to vote or encourage them which from thinking they might vote for mr. obama to mr. romney and that doesn't seem to be happening right now. i think it ought to be hurting the campaign a bit. >> mark, very briefly. this is really a chance for the president to explore that illusive quality of presidential leadership in the campaign. >> this is what -- who deserves to be president. people are looking towards him, how does he lead, how does he speak for america? it's a real opportunity for him, but if he gets it wrong, that is a very big black mark just days away from the election. >> yeah, this storm, no one knows how it will play out politically. thank you both very much. you're watching "bbc world news america." still to come on tonight's program -- as china gets ready to hand over power to a new generation, the residents of one rural village talk about their expectations. >> a former bbc governor says that jimmy was kept away from children in need. jones, who was chairman of the charity, said he had suspicions about the former tv star a decade ago. his comments come on the day of whether the corporation's child protection and whistle blowing policies are respectable. david reports. >> a different is in need at the moment. >> thank you and thank you very much. >> back in the 1980's, jimmy -- >> here is the world famous -- >> but a few years later he was banned. quietly behind the scenes, the chairman of children in need decided to keep him away from the charity telethon. there were rumors, suspicions. >> some of the staff of the children in need were apprehensive. words like flicky were used. it's very important to me, it's important to the staff of the children in need. it's a wonderful charity. >> so there were doubts. new research suggests there has been a decline. the polling firm asked two questions. do you trust the bbc? and are you proud of it? and he compared it with figures compared back in 2009 and in both the figures have gone down. in terms of pride, 76% in 2009, 62% now. and do you trust the bbc? again, it's gone down. 62% to 45%, less than half of it. and it's restoring trust in inquiry which was beginning its work. >> i've been a -- >> to police the bbc, many new something. together they might have seen there was a pattern. david, bbc news. >> let's take a look at other news from around the world now. syrian state television is reporting that 10 people have died when a car bomb exploded in the suburb of demascus. it's believed children were among the dead. opposition activists say the syrian air force has launched attack on rebels. it's the largest air strike. it may be hard to believe today, but for several years syria was a refuge from violent. many iraqis escaped across the border and tried to make a life there. but as the war in syria escaladed, tens of thousands of iraqi families had to flee again, coming home to a country that's still not safe. dozens of civilians died from bomb attacks. now on what the refugees are returning to. >> now many families sought sanctuary in syria are back in baghdad after escaping for their lives. they're lining up to help them start again. stress has taken its toll on this person's health. and his children told me they wish iraq was safer. with no home to come back to, the whole family is now staying with relatives. he said he was forced to leave everything he ha in baghdad when his younger brother was ki d >> it was the gun that ruled when i left. the americans were here and it was chaos. now some things are bette some are not. >> the capital of baghdad is a city on constant guard. a city choked by chnts. police and government ficials are being assassinated virtually every day. and offici say al qaeda in iraq ino rrouping. after watching his brother die in front o him, he's atruggling. much-loved brother by aomb captured by aystander on a mobile what happened that day in july still haunts him. >> i can't sleep, not a wink. our whole family has been destroyed, especially my mother. >> iraqi families are no longer couped up at home as they were in the darkest days of the civil war. but a power sharing agreement between shiites and even kurds has led to political pa rale cis, and sectariism still lives below the surface here. -- paralysis and sectarianism still lives below the surface here. this is still a traumatized society, and there are now the war in syria could reignite sectarian tensions here. more than 200 civilians have already been killed in violence this month, and many here mourn e futu they hoped for. >> the regional impact of the war in syria still not fully known. in just days, china is due to make an announcement which has huge future and for the rest of the world. the lineup of new leaders is due to be unveiled it he communist party congress that starts next week. it's a leadership change which only comes once every 10 years so every day this week our china correspondents will be reporting from different locations and look at the huge economicnd social changes of recent years. martin starts us off with a village arhe great wall. >> for centuries this village has lane in the shadow of the great wall. they've known hard times but they say the village has been transformed in the last decade. i feel like i'm living in heaven. in the past there was never enough food and we always went hungry. but now the government supports me although i'm not wealthy, i have more than enough. few young people work the land any more. many have higher paying jobs outside the village. some of them have become successful entrepreneurs. this man makes his money selling sausages and has spent $60,000 on building a new store. he says it's vital that the village continues to develop. >> everyone here wants to have more money and hopes our village becomes richer. it's important we keep developing so we're not laughed at by outsiders. >> life isn't always easy here, but the villagers have become used to these times. and the new leaders will be needing the expectations. >> and we will be happy to report from our correspondents all week from around china. and a quick look again at our main story before we go. hurricane sandy, which is now edging closer to the eastern seaboard of the united states, we've been given an advisory it will hit within the next few hours. you can see the picture there live from maryland. enormous waves. big winds packed into this storm, and the worst of it, of course, hasn't come. it will hit landfall in a few hours' time. it will be overnight before we see the worst of the damage. new york city normally bustling at this time of day, almost deserted in the streets. you can see a crane there on top of the 65-story building, clearly had some problems with the wind. and again we won't know the full impact of the storm for a few hours yet. but millions of people live in the path of hurricane sandy. tens of thousands are being told to evacuate. washington, d.c., i have to say, i have never seen the city looking like this, eerily quiet downtown. the streets totally deserted in the nation's capital, of course, we'll be getng the impact of that storm as well. that brings today's program to a close. of course, you can get update on

the hurricane. kimmel usually tapes in los angeles but he's at the brooklyn academy of music this week. he says they will use backup generators just in case of a power outage. you were saying that's really going to be the big story for so many folks here, right? >> especially a lot of metropolitan areas. a lot of people in the suburbs are used to it with the trees and power lines above ground. a lot of the cities have power lines below. hopefully cities like new york city and philadelphia won't have too many power outages. >> the danger is, this time last year we had hurricane irene and it went right around new york. i think a lot of people are thinking that might happen. >> it's a big storm. there's going to be a lot of issues. >>> all right. i'm veronica de la cruz, this is "early today," just the first stop of the day today on your nbc station. >>> the statue of liberty turned 126 on sunday, but hurricane sandy has forced officials to delay unveiling her new look. a small ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the celebration of lady liberty's reopening. the landmark had a $30 million

too quickly and i think if they got to know the customers better they would be less likely to do that. thank you. >> thank you sir. mr. scary. >> simply it's the budget. the budget is why, why. >> >> without of whack. 1996 it was 3.$5 billion, same people, more services. today is seven point three billion people and same people and less service. the government gives you more of what you don't want and less of what you do want, and we want more service. we have to pay for it. my suggestion is we look at the wasteful spending in government and i conservatively believe there is a minimum 10% waste in government. if you were to take the money that we have and the waste is it's $720 million. that covers more than enough to cover the unfunded liabilities. it's the budget and the wasteful spending. thank you. >> all right. thank you sir: mr. yee. >> thank you cheryl. the most important thing -- the most important immediate policy that we can address and adl of us can address is proposition e. that is to move our payroll tax to gross receipt tax and why? because by doing that we can create jobs in san francisco and keep people in san francisco . the kids are growing up and we want them to stay but we need jobs. i agree with mr. crowley with the police force and make sure that is fully staffed and i have been speaking to the police athletic league and they have a program to breen the teenagers to be interns in the police force and they would feed into the police cadet program. thank you. >> thank you sir. the next question the city's liabilities are projected to increase in the next coming year. s what new or increased fees should it institute and i will repeat the question and we will begin with mr. crowley. >> i would say that one of the bigger things that we will have before us is the gross receipts tax check that norman talked about trading from the payroll tax which is punitive. the next thing i would do is increase the foot print on mos sony center and that brings in a lot of money to the general fund and erect a multi-purpose area and bring in more money to the coffers and a green industry. one reason to bring them in is people come and go into the city of san francisco and that is a large footprint. they come and go. the visitors spend approximately $1 million of revenue in san francisco every hour and save us $1,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're at the 1978 price so we need to close the loopholes. we need to encourage small business growth. we can't live on facebook alone and make sure a small business owner with an idea city hall makes it easy to grow and start your business because that will drive a dynamic local economy and i think that's the key. >> all right. >> it seems as though we're all avoiding the question, and that is what new fees and what new taxes should we impose and i guess that's because we're all reluctant to do that and we feel the better way is figure out new sources of revenue for the city, so i agree that we need to do things that would enhance the quality of life in san francisco and draw more tourists and expand that center and we're turning away dollars to the city. we need a new facility and we don't have one currently for that and we need to streamline the planning process. i spent seven years on the board of appeals and there are things sitting in the pipeline and create necessary jobs and revenue and we're not taking advantage of that and we need to do things at increased revenue and i am reluctant to talk about imposing new fees and taxes. >> ms. gavin. >> i would say one of the things that we have to do would be close the loop holes that we give big business. they come here and they say they're going to provide jobs and jobs and the jobs don't materialize so they don't need the tax break. i also agree with expanding m mosconi and we have to look at everything in the budget and all options need to be on the table. everything needs to be on the table and again as i say taxes cannot just be one solution. everything must be looked at. >> all right. thank you. >> yes. well, i have a novel idea to generate revenue and it's imposing a war profiteers tax on all corporations that do business here in san francisco. we have a lot of war profiteers that make billions with business here in san francisco and waging war in the middle east, so i would legislate some kind of tax revenue that would impose that tax and we need to stop gouging average taxpayers, homeowners, consumers in generating revenue for the city. we need to go after the people with the deep pockets and that is the corporations, so that's what i would suggest. >> all right. mr. rogers. >> you know i think this question would have been better asked maybe last year. presently the revenue is 7.5 billion dollars generated and the year before we had only 4 billion so we're almost double what we had in terms of money. that being said i think with the gross receipt tax reform that there will also be more money coming in so really we're going to be having plenty of money, but one thing i don't think we should do is try to develop and tax developers and be able to generate money through the general fund by unbridled growth. i think this is actually a cancer for san francisco and that we really should not be doing unbridled growth. we should listen to the voters who voted for proposition m. >> all right. thank you. >> i am excited to give my answer. i'm opposed to all taxes increasing period. the government does not create any wealth. the only way you create wealth is you create opportunity. the way you create opportunity you let the free market work. you bring businesses in. you don't put your foot on the throat of businesses. i have a small business here in san francisco. two i have started and successful for 30 years. i wouldn't open another business in san francisco and i'm a city kid. it's the tax regulations and the regulations that break the backs of the small businesses. when they talk about tax receipt versus employee receipts and they say it's going to generate $40 million but cost them another $8 million, i can guarantee it's going to cost three times that much but what it does is drive businesses out of the city. i am against all tax increases period. >> thank you sir. mr. yee. >> >> so this answer to me is several folds. number one, we got make sure that the government is efficient, so first thing i will do is ask for an audit of the departments and programs and see what works and what doesn't work. if it doesn't work we will get rid of it. we need to support small businesses and i could go through several things why we should do that. they create 50% of the jobs in san francisco and we also need -- i would support giving business incentives like twitter and create the company here and create more jobs for san francisco. by increasing the jobs opportunities and the business of revenues the revenues will increase without taxes. >> mr. bye. >> thank you. i do agree that efficiency is something that really can increase the way money is used in this city. i am so glad that the pension reform is being dealt with now but we need to go further with that. we need to have caps, tiers on pension, keep city money in the city. i don't want any new taxes and i am a homeowner and i will vote for the city college tax but it's terrible we came to this point and we have to tax residents of problems what shouldn't have been there from the get go and supporting small businesses. it's the heart of the city and small businesses and tourism and in discussing tourism you need to discuss homelessness on the street. i have friends from all over the world they are a gawft to howl people on the street and i am happy that the mayor is tackling that working with sfpd and the courts and get the chronically alcoholic and sick people off the streets to really save a lot of money for the city. >> all right thank you. our next question. what steps should the city be taking to increase the supply of new housing units? >> district seven has a unique opportunity to help the city. we have needs for growth and we need to develop housing and we have an area and park merced that is going to be developed and i think it's a great area to provide density as long as there is the transportation, public transportation is provided and improved upon and district seven is unique because it's a lot of single family homes and people don't want density there. it's part of the ux new how. >> >> >> and it's unique to grow and provide housing. >> all right. >> thank you. what we need to do is increase the density in san francisco but very carefully and incrementally in a way that doesn't destroy the quality of the neighborhoods so we need to work with the planning department and look at those parts of the city to do in fill and projects in district seven or other districts we have sensible models and do housing on transit corridors and retail on the lower flows and don't exceed the height limits in neighborhoods that is not desirable and we have the sixth street corridor and parts of the mission -- i'm sorry. south of the mission where could be increasing the height and having pdr's downstairs. in other words industry serving facilities and still get reasonable housing in those areas. >> all right. ms. gavin. thank you. >> well, unlike some of the fellow candidates here i am suing to stop the agreement. the case is in federal court. i don't think park merced needs to be destroyed but this is an important issue in terms of housing and affordable housing. i don't think density is -- i think we have to be very careful about that. i think san francisco is unique in the way -- and we don't look like some cities and we have areas that have problems, but we have a beautiful city, and it's the open space that makes the city very, very beautiful, and we also are federally recognized for sanctuary of rare birds that migrate along the coast. there are about 500,000 and when thinking about growth we need to think about the animals and the environment and the ecology as well. >> all right. mr. lagos. >> yes. one of the reasons i moved to san francisco 35 years ago was because there was not a large population here. i moved from los angeles and it's grown 50,000 people in those years. i don't want to see it grow further per se and i'm not a fan of developing more housing but to answer the question if we add more housing i would say loosen up the rules to allow homeowners to create inlaw apartments and that way you open up unit availability at some level for additional housing. other than that i would be opposed to any new construction of any major land use of development for housing including the three major projects in the pipeline. >> mr. rogers. >> if there is going to be development it could be in the trans bays terminal that is truly close to rapid transit. walking distance to bart. walking distance to the train that heads down south. this would be an ideal place for a development to occur. a place like park merced where you have 17,000 people would be moving in there. 6,000 parking stalls, a car dependent project, right next to 19th avenue. you folks know how bad that is. how would it be better if we had more people living in park merced? i don't think so. so in my opinion growth should really be stopped. that was what the voters wanted in the 1980's when they voted for proposition m. thank you. >> if i do remember about 30-40 years ago san francisco was approaching a million i think in population. might have gone over but it was close so i know that we can handle it and i am very strong supporter of the park merced project which ties into how we can increase our tax base income. you turn around and create opportunity. the government cannot create opportunity. the development will create opportunities which will bring employment in. it will bring businesses in and it will turn around and increase our tax base and it has to come from the private sector and i believe the project is a very good project and i support it. >> thank you sir. mr. yee. >> here are my two criterias when it comes to housing. i believe in reasonable growth and i believe in healthy robust community process, so here we are. we just developed something in our district on ocean avenue and we had a healthy discussion around the avalon development. broke ground. no protests. people agreed on it. felix circle we had a healthy discussion and we will have additional housing there too. i was just up on crest mount drive. there is controversy over there whether this is reasonable or not and i don't think the developer who is have presented the project is reasonable, but the neighbors in seem to be reasonable because they weren't saying "don't build anything". they said "let's scale down the development somewhat" so i support those notions of reasonable growth, community process and i do support proposition c for affordable housing funds. >> thank you sir. >> well, there is some room for increased density but let's face it. this is a finite 49 square miles and that defines san francisco. i am not anti-development by any means but it needs to be done right wherever it's done in conjunction with transportation, water, sewer, electrical infrastructure. transportation is so important when talking about projects like park merced or others. if you talk about building a project anywhere and look at the eir process or elements that have to do with transportation and just rely on muni and near a station or track. we just can't put it off like that and we have one element -- excuse me, probably going to work. no. so it means doing it right in conjunction with all of the existing infrastructure including muni. >> all right. mr. crowley. >> thank you cheryl. we are blessed. we are land locked but i believe in this case we need to have balance. we have a housing trust before us this november they believe needs to be replacing the redevelopment agency which has indexes for salaries of folks that can benefit from an affordable housing policy. i would also say that most homes and apartments and condo conversions need to be near transportation and retail wraps. we have things up in hunter's point and treasure island coming on point and with that i hope park merced gets built but not without tenant protections and that's what i suggest. >> thank you. i want to remind you we're taking questions from the audience so if we have more questions is a good time to collect those. looks like everybody dealt with the park merced issue so our next question is how would you solve the homelessness problem in san francisco? and we will start with mr. garcia. >> my god, what an easy question. of course we're not going to solve it. the best we can do is try to minimize it and i think we are on the right track and we have a new homeless czar in pl dusty and i like the deal he's dealing with it and a way of dealing with chronic alcoholics and the protections that we have for homeless people are to protect society and not from the homeless people but to deal with that. it's 51-50 and i am sure some people know what that is and the police has the power to hold someone who is a threat to themselves or someone else for 72 hours. we need to enact laura's law and mr. dufty is working on that and finding housing for these individuals but not to keep going back to the economy but one solution is improve the economy so we can improve these people's lives. thank you. >> thank you. >> l the homeless problem it's very, very interesting because you know some cities don't -- i think one of the reasons we do have a problem is because of the wonderful social services that we have here in this city and unfortunately as someone who has sat on several committees it's disheartening that just across the east bay, even if you go to oakland, it changes drastically and i think it's one of the reasons people come to san francisco. do they all live here? absolutely not. and i think we have to get tough with this issue and the housing authority truly needs some restructuring, so that they can do their mandate which is to house people because that's another issue, but there is money missing there, so i think we have to be tough with that and it's like tough love but because we do care and it's going have to be dealt with. thank you. >> thank you. >> yes. well, homelessness has been a major problem for many years, ever since i came to san francisco we've had homelessness and it's gotten worse, and so i believe that local government hasn't done enough for the homeless, and as i stated in an earlier answer i believe that money for the homeless should come from downtown corporations through the war profit tax and provide housing for the homeless. we have a cacantacy rate here that is high and park merced where it's high and i believe those units should be used to house homeless people with the revenue generates from the war profits tax so that's what i would propose in dealing with the homeless issue. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. rogers. >> you know sadly the 50% of the homeless are actually vietnam veterans and so this makes homelessness really a national embarrassment. in the past they had post traumatic stress disorder was claimed to be -- the people had it before they were in war, before they went through a terribly difficult time and they did not provide the people any money. fortunately with the obama administration this has changed and these people are coming back and being able to be given some money, so on the federal level i think there's some improvement. when it comes to san francisco i think we need to do more, and i would research this further and answer that question later. thank you. >> all right thank you sir. >> i am under the assumption i'm a problem solver. first you have to identify the problem and i would lump this into three groups. you have people who do not want to be helpedda that want to be live on the street. you have people that don't know where the help is and people people that want it and we need to identify the people that want to be helped that can be helped and there are certain people no matter what you do they do not want help. they want to live on the streets and that in turn we should enforce the laws on the books, and that is the only way i believe you can solve the problem. it's not about money. it's about identifying the problem and i believe you've got to identify who the homeless people are first before you can solve it. >> all right thank you sir. mr. yee. >> he is absolutely right. there are different categories of homeless individuals and families. i spent 20 years running an organization which we had programs in the tender loin and we actually served a lot of homeless families and many of the families what do they want? a home for the kids. they want jobs and child care. those are the things we're talking about and justifying the needs. there are many others but not the vast majority. the vast majority of the people that want to get out of the homelessness. there is a small percentage of people that were veterans which is true but what happened we got rid of mental health services and that's what happened. once we started getting rid of mental health services we saw increase of people on the street that seemed to need a lot more help. >> thank you. >> there is a wide range, a wide spectrum of the reasons people end up on the street to schizophrenia individuals to destiewt individuals and peel who are optunistic about it and have hotels or other parts of the bay area and all of them need to be dealt with compassionately with resources, with outreach, but i don't think we need -- you know the department of public health is quite familiar with these reasons that people are out on the streets and we have great programs like project homeless connect. i was proud to do outreach with that organization, but whether it is people who need service because they are very, very sick for whatever reason, all the way down to people who do need to be moved along by people on the street and law enforcement and programs and not giving handouts and looking at it compassionately and with resources and outreach. >> thank you very much. >> this is a very serious problem. one in four visitors to san francisco cites homelessness as a reason not to come back. we have a new program in november with judge katherine fine stein will put in warrants and citations that are by the ones that use most of the services and that is a good beginning. and one other program that was under gavin newsom and we had the issue of surrounding jurisdictions and sending their downtrodden to san francisco. we spend millions of dollars for police and fire services here in san francisco for the same persons. we have the emergency homeless and homeless connects and homeless bound so we spend 694 annually on this and i hope we have more services and compassionate for the folks that are downtrodden. >> i think people would love if san francisco could look like new york city does now and landscape but we don't have the political will to do that and we need to do second best and focus on two things. one, many of the homeless
